Question about Dryers
Dryer won't come out of it's integrated cupboard. We've disconnected vent through wall at back (by accessing from outside) and have lowered the machine as much as the feet will allow. Is there a way to dismantle the machine with access to the front only as we can not get it to move despite trying everything we can think of. Worktop is granite so can not be moved to give access from above.
I have seen some terrible installations in the field. If the granite was installed after the dryer, there is the possibility of the granite resting directly on the dry or possibly glued to it. You mentioned having lowered the legs, so I believe you meant the front legs since the rears are not accessible. I would take 2 wire coat hangers and put one around each leg. Then you can pull on them "wiggling" the unit left and right, up and down, while someone is also pulling at the top INSIDE of dryer door opening (drum).
If you are able to get this thing out, make sure you make all necessary corrections to the install.

I hae to say it, but it sounds like the motor has already gone out. That loud humming noise is usually the start windings going out. There is no other way easily to tell if the motor is out, but taking the belt off and saying it doesnt look broke what work in this situation. I would imagine that you have a DOTT (Dryer Of Tommorrow, Today) dryer, because you said it had the front panel. The motor part number is 279787 if this the case. Good Luck, and let me know if you find out any new information or need further help.

Hi Nick, welcome to FixYa!
1. Open the door and remove the two screws that secure each of the door hinges to the dryer frame. With the door open so you can take a hold of it, simply pull the whole door out of the notches that the hinges fit into.
Next, remove the two screws on the opposite side of the frame where the door closes to. (along with the two white plastic trim pieces the screws go thru) Once the door is off and the screws are out, pull the entire front panel forward and then it will lift off the tabs at the bottom and you can set it aside.
next, look up near the top of the cabinet, on each side, for the metal hooks that secure the top to the cabinet. Remove the screw (5/16" nut driver) that secures each hook to the cabinet. Take the hook off, repeat for the other side.
Now you can lift up the top of the machine, and rotate the drum so that the loose baffle is at the top so you can work on the baffle easily. Rotate the drum to the next baffle, etc.
I hope you find this answer helpful.

Knocking out a plug in the dryer, taking ducting loose, moving it around, putting in some new pieces, etc.,etc. Mostly mechanical stuff -- not a teriffically difficult job. Would help to be handy, though.
